Roasted Vegetables are the Way to Go


What was the deal with the steamed vegetable phase? Steaming tends to make vegetables mushy and it leaches the color and flavor out of them (for the most part...there are good steamed vegetable recipes out there). Now, roasting is where it is at. Roasting just makes vegetables crisp and tender at the same time and the flavor is out of this world. Here's a great roasted broccoli recipe for you to enjoy.


Roasted Garlic Lemon Broccoli


2 heads broccoli, separated into florets
2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

In a large bowl, toss broccoli florets with the extra virgin olive oil, sea salt, pepper, and garlic. Spread the broccoli out in an even layer on a baking sheet.

Bake in the preheated oven until florets are tender enough to pierce the stems with a fork, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove and transfer to a serving platter. Squeeze lemon juice liberally over the broccoli before serving for a refreshing, tangy finish.
